Double Take and Fade Away
Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

John Kearns Double Take and Fade Away (UK)

Back-to-back Edinburgh Best Newcomer and Edinburgh Comedy Award winner, four-time Chortle Award nominee and two-time nominee for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show John Kearns returns with his original, entrancing and off kilter take on the ordinary and the sublime.

Still a slave to dairy, the Gregorian calendar and Greenwich Mean Time, he is flesh and blood after all. A funny man, not for everyone of course, but remember this mustn’t be mistaken as an invite – rather a heads-up. The show implores you to learn lessons from your ceiling and realise Fred Astaire actually knew very well what he was doing.

‘Possibly his finest show yet, a beautiful hour of soulful stand-up. ★★★★★' Time Out

'The best showcase of his greatness yet. ★★★★½' The Times (UK)

‘A unique act, exquisite but robust. ★★★★½' Chortle (UK)

‘Finds the poetry in the overlooked everyday. ★★★★½' The Guardian (UK)
